There are so many every day tasks that we all come across that we need to automate away. My most recent example is that I wanted to blog more.
So what do I do first? I write code of course:
I setup this hard-coded example of a
blog command which will create a new Markdown file pre-loaded with the proper frontmatter content based on the title that I pass in.
I love building little tools like this and I think they're super important for evolving our own skills as developers. It's a kind of dogfooding (building and using tools for yourself) that brings you closer to feeling what the client feels.
